The Parque de Santa Catalina means different things to different people, the locals see it as a meeting point, somewhere to walk the dog without leaving any trace that they've done so, a place to have a game of cards or dominoes and a major bus interchange point. For the tourists it has the tourist office, the office of the... More

Cheap market, almost all being uninspired clothes on the day we visited. As far as I could tell the park is rows of trees set in concrete paving - no grass. You can walk there in 20 mins from the road with the big El Corte Ingles and you can go from Santa Catalina Park to the commercial shopping centre... More

The Parque is located close to the beach. After eating we continued on our way towards Las... More

Also an outdoor bar on the top. Swans and fish in a pond, and many familiar flowers and plants. Spring water.

This park sits very close to the beach and is a welcome open space in a built up area of downtown. Its main use is for a set of bus stops but is a good meeting place.

Went here a couple of times on our walks through Las Palmas. It is lined with many shops, cafès and restaurants. A nice decorated open area. There is a playground for kids and an open area where street shows are done. Buses run through here so be alert! Lovely area and worth checking out.

Spacious square, with bars and restaurants on the square, not far from the waterfront Often there is music, or you can watch sports in one of the bar/restaurants Great place to hang out and watch the world go by

Not what we would call a park more of a square with several restaurant/bars on one side with a varied mix of food styles - great if you want to watch the football in a relaxed open air space. Bit pricier than inland but a premium space.
